1972:

1. GSET
2. Bertha
3. Jack Straw
4. Loser
5. FOTD


1980:

1. Jack Straw
2. Loser
3. FOTD
4. Bertha
5. GSET

Yep, GSET goes from 1st to last. It goes from great to it blows. But Loser, Jack Straw, and FOTD pick up steam as the years go by. I always like a Bertha.

just happen to have just started listening to 5/4/72 - Greatest Story to start and it sure sounds fine! I love this show. Hard to rate my preferences for 1st set highlights, but these are all some of my favorite songs, so can't go wrong. Suppose I'd throw in Shakedown and Stranger, Sampson, and some of those great 74 set 1 closing Playin's! Always love a good Loser, though, love that song. And hey, how about song 2 of 5/4/72: Deal? There have been some mighty good ones in set 1.

Just realizing, I'm outside of the rules of this post. Want to know what I think of these songs? Ok

Bertha
Loser
